About Me

I’ve lived on the Canadian prairies my whole life.  I grew up in a very small town in the middle of nowhere with a farmer’s field just beyond our backyard.  I left to go to university and have lived in a city ever since.  However, growing up in that small town, where we had to drive long distances to get anywhere, shaped my world view.  We were (are) a fairly quiet family; content  to be in the car together, listening to the radio, and looking at the scenery. There was lots of time to think, imagine and to daydream.

I hope this blog helps me re-discover my creative side. I did a lot of writing in my teens and early 20s and called it Prairie Girl Wonders, so it seems like a good name for my blog. I’m interested in photography, food and wine, traveling, books, music and movies. These are mostly the things I’ll blog about.

Hope you enjoy the visit.


P.S. May 2013 and I’ve been blogging for a year.  It has become mostly about my photography and writing.  It will likely continue to be that way, but there may be the odd post about food or a new favourite wine, or the latest stack of books I’ve collected in my office at the library (but that doesn’t mean I read all of them or haven’t paid overdue fines on books that are sitting in my office)…

Thank you for checking out prairie girl wonders.

P.P.S. April 2015  Photography has become my main creative outlet.  I still have much to learn, but I really enjoy capturing what I see and how I see my surroundings. I’ve given my site a new, hopefully fresh, look and will continue to share my wonders… my photography, my thoughts and quotes I find interesting.

Once again, thank you for checking out prairie girl wonders.

P.P.P.S March 2016   Photography has been on the back burner over the winter (busy at work and lacking inspiration), but New Orleans renewed me in so many ways… such a complicated, beautiful, fully alive place. I really enjoyed capturing what I saw. It’s why I started my blog – I needed a place to balance out all the bad news and negative opinions, and instead, attempt to showcase the beauty and wonder I see around us.

Thanks for checking out my site….

March 22, 2020 Wow, four years since my last update! My goal is to use this time of physical/social distancing to get back to blogging as a creative outlet.  I want to focus on something other than things happening around me I can’t control.

    Andrea here from The Peakbaggers (www.thepeakbaggers.com). I came across your blog in researching our Sask peak and wanted to invite you out so I can thank you for all your great photos! Your blog has become such an inspiration and I’m looking very forward to making the drive from Ontario in a couple weeks. Here’s our facebook event if you can make it -https://www.facebook.com/events/525644024255863/ – will be super casual and inspired by the folks at Chasing Sunrise (http://chasingsunri.se/).
